Roll up, roll up, completely free access to one poor sod's long list of strange Windows happenings!

Basically, I re-installed Windows about a month ago. Since then, stuff's been going wrong.

Take your pick:
Random BSOD's
Mouse & Keyboard freezes, requires restart
Screen freeze
Random screen "drops" (black screen for a few seconds, like Nvidia driver stopped and re-started)

System Specs:
128GB SSD
1.5TB HDD + 2TB External HDD
6GB DDR3 RAM
MSI GTX 560Ti HAWK
Nvidia Driver 285.62

Latest BSOD crash report:

One I had just under a month ago (would be just after the re-install I reckon)

Things I have already tried:
Memory test (passed, no errors)

Those that dare to help... will receive great thanks and a free coffee

Symptoms are VERY likely to be driver related. You don't specify manuf./self-build...If it is manuf. then go to downlaods and get latest drivers...if it is self-build you will have to do a lot of manual searching. This link might help

Hey (I'm from Surrey too!)

It's a self build (essentially, ordered it off a website that custom-built it out of parts for me, I've upgraded it a lot).

I can't think of any hardware that's new that caused the problem befor emy Windows re-install. I've rolled back my Nvidia drivers to one that is apparently known to work (GTX 560's experience a lot of issues apparently) so I will see if it works. Done the RAM check, and I don't think I can disable the driver specified in the log file because its a key system file or something. If it still goes wrong despite these drivers I'll attempt a few more things they recommend.

Thanks for your help.

Watch out for any overclocking...'cos that often produces a false positive on drivers.

Yup, I haven't over clocked (yet). Thought my GTX 560 HAWK is factory OC'd to 950Mhz..
